SafeCut – the new disc shear-off system brings unique protection and operational reliability to EasyCut mowers with and without conditioner. The situation is familiar to every farmer – a disc collides with a foreign object, is damaged and requires repair. Offering a maximum of protection, the KRONE SafeCut does not transfer the full shockload to the spur gears. Instead, the roll pin in the sprocket driveshaft breaks when there is a momentary overload. The pinion shaft continues spinning, jacking up the disc in question and moving it out of the risk zone and the orbit of the neighbouring discs. As a result, SafeCut prevents damage to the spur gears and the neighbouring discs.
The moment of impact: The roll pin shears off. This cuts the driveline and stops the disc, which jacks 15 mm (0.6") up a thread. This eliminates any risk of colliding and damaging the neighboring disc.
The intelligent linkage system – a unique KRONE design
- Double mounting: center of gravity suspension, parallelogram linkage guidance
- Uniform ground pressure across the entire work width
- Large pivot range Perfect ground hugging
- Excellent guidance Clean cuts Less side thrust
A perfect and clean cut is at the heart of high-quality forage. As a result, it is not only the design of the cutterbar but also its suspension system that is important here. KRONE DuoGrip not only suspends the mower in its center of gravity but also provides the unit with lateral guidance. The system maintains the ground pressure across the full work width and provides highest stability, lowest weight and optimum side control.
Are you looking for a high-capacity mower of a 3 m (9'10") work width? Then, the KRONE EasyCut 280 and 320 disc mowers with DuoGrip are for you. These machines stand out for an extremely low power input, maximum stability as well as superior specification levels and superior operator comfort. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from the feeling of being properly geared for the job.
A unique KRONE design: This impact damage protection system offers two-fold protection – both to the total unit and to the cutterbar and its discs.
Continued performance at high output levels requires not only a powerful machine but also ease of operation. With this in mind, KRONE specifies its EasyCut 280 and 320 disc mowers with single-acting rams that lift and lower the units on the headland and fold them into transport position. The driveshaft is protected by a stop to restrict lift height and the angle of articulation of the universal joints. At the same time, headland turns are easier thanks to a generous ground clearance. The three-point mounted EasyCut mowers do not require the link arms to raise when running over windrows.
